After an intense cliffhanger ending, we're forced to wait yet again for a new season of Succession on HBO. After production on the third season was delayed in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the third season came almost two years late and has since received critical acclaim. We're only too desperate to see how the series will continue, but until we can get an idea of when the new season will begin, there are definitely shows like it to help fill the Succession-shaped void in our hearts.

Intense family drama and witty but cutting dialogue are Succession's specialties. As the series follows the children of the Roy family while they vie for control of their father's enormous media empire, there's plenty of backstabbing and power plays throughout the first three seasons. The show was renewed for Season 4 in October 2021, but we still have to wait to hear when it comes out.

In the meantime, there are other great shows like Succession that we can use to tide ourselves over.
